Soweto Soul (SAF)

Soweto Soul (SAF)Soweto Soul is the result of a trip that Dutch producer/guitarist Joep Pelt undertook in 2010 for a radio documentary about South Africa’s local music culture. He found traditional styles such as pennywhistle jive and mbaqanga, both on the brink of being forgotten in a US music-dominated market. And he found current streams like hip-hop and kwaito. Soweto Soul is the confluence of these styles: a dynamic soundtrack to South African townships.
